Saturday, January 08, 2005Went looking for owls in the Caldwell Woods forest preserve this morning. No such luck--saw only a dozen mallards on the river and a half dozen plump mourning doves, roosting lazily on a branch.
the sky was overcast and children were screeching on their sleds in the distance.
shout outs to Ira Glass and the crew of This American Life for their amazing documentary work on this week's show--they set out to record for those of us back home what life is like for American soldiers in Iraq. things are horrible, in the words of one soldier. May they all return soon safely from this collective nightmare.
